Subject: Summary of Evidence for Combatant Status Review Tribunal - LNU, Sharifullah

Under the provisions of the Secretary of the Navy Memorandum, dated 29 July 2004, Implementation of Combatant Status Review Tribunal Procedures for Enemy Combatants Detained at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base Cuba, a Tribunal has been appointed to review the detainee's designation as an enemy combatant.


An enemy combatant has been defined as "an individual who was part of or supporting the Taliban or al Qaeda forces, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. This includes any person who committed a belligerent act or has directly supported hostilities in aid of enemy armed forces."


The United States Government has previously determined that the detainee is an enemy combatant . This determination is based on information possessed by the United States that indicates that he is associated with the Taliban or at Qaida.

A. The detainee is associated with the Taliban or al Qaida.
  1. The detainee trained at Grand Talimi Military School.
  2. While at the Grand Talimi Military School, the detainee was trained on the Kalashnikov, low crawl and the riot control with the use of shields.
  3. The detainee also trained for 10 days at military camp in Zahar Khel Village.
  4. At this camp, the Detainee was trained in the use of personal weapons, the disassembly of land mines and the production of bombs from parts of the disassembled land mines.

  6. Hezb-E-Islam/Gulbuddin (HIG) members recruited young and impressionable radical men from the Shamshato Refugee camp to train at camps focusing on advanced training including remote controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and electronics.
  7. When the detainee was arrested, a search revealed the storage of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

The detainee has the opportunity to contest his designation as an enemy combatant. The Tribunal will endeavor to arrange for the presence of any reasonably available witnesses or evidence that the detainee desires to call or introduce to prove that he is not an enemy combatant. The Tribunal President will determine the reasonable availability of evidence or witnesses.
